Period of implementation: 2017-2020
SEnDIng project aims to address the skills’ gap of Data Scientists and Internet of Things engineers that has been identified in the ICT and other sectors (e.g. banking and energy) in which Data Science and Internet of Things have broad applications. To achieve this goal, SEnDIng will develop and deliver two learning outcome-oriented modular VET programmes (DS and IoT) using innovative teaching and training delivery methodologies. Each VET programme will be provided to employed ICT professionals into three phases that include: (a) 100 hours of online asynchronous training, (b) 20 hours of face-to-face training and (c) 4 months of work-based learning. A certification mechanism will be designed and used for the certification of the skills acquired by the trainees of the two vocational programmes. In addition, recommendations will be outlined for validation, certification & accreditation of provided VET programmes. Furthermore, SEnDIng will define a reference model for the vocational skills, e-competences and qualifications of the targeted occupational profiles that will be compliant with the European e-Competence Framework (e-CF) and the ESCO IT occupations, ensuring transparency, comparability and transferability across European countries.
